Expanding on the ground-breaking ABC documentary, Walkley award-winning journalists Sarah Ferguson and Tony Jones lay bare the criminal action of priests and brothers within the Catholic Church and show how senior members of the Church did nothing to stop the evil within.
In this powerful, must-read expose, the formidable Walkley award-winning journalists Sarah Ferguson and Tony Jones have teamed up to expand on the ground-breaking ABC documentary Revelation to lay bare the criminal actions of priests and brothers within the Catholic Church. Following court cases, visiting perpetrators in prison and uncovering secrets the Church has hidden for years, Ferguson and Jones take us on a journey from local Australian parishes to Ireland and all the way to the Vatican to uncover why the Church's most senior power-brokers did nothing to stop the evil within.
This is a book that will have repercussions for perpetrators as it lifts the veil on Australia's worst serial paedophiles. Because of the robes they wore and the positions they held, these men were trusted, welcomed into homes and schools to target our most vulnerable. How did this happen? What drove these men to commit these acts?
Compelling and confronting, these two investigative journalists take us into the heart of darkness to ensure the systems of concealment are shattered and the protection stops. We owe it to all the victims to understand their pain and suffering so that abuse like this never happens again.
